Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

I have had some close calls using Limberick street when entering from the Napier Road end. Cars are able to park on the left hand side of the road (there are no yellow lines) and when passing it is necessary to cross over the centre line onto the right hand side of the road. Unfortunately there is no visibility of vehicles which are usually approaching at speed. (there is a right hand bend in the road at this point). I generally avoid going this way but went that way this morning (9 Aug 2019). Three vehicles were parked on the left hand side of Limberick Street and I felt very uncomfortable passing the parked cars because a head on collision is a distinct possibility. I'll send in some photos if you wish, but it's pretty obvious that yellow lines are required in my view.
